Everything Social Workers Need To Know About Professional References

In the social services in New Jersey, supervisors are told they cannot give references. If I ask a supervisor they will say "it is policy not to give out references." Stop Lying to us. Yet all job applications make us sign a Release of Authorization allowing the new employer to inquire about the person." If you do not sign you do not get a job. The underhanded way of getting references allows for discrimination, bad references without the job applicants say. This is the truth. This is my experience.
